That is only 0.00083% of his $6,000,000 salary....that'd be like me getting fined $67! I have a feeling I'd miss the $67 more than he is going to miss the $5000. NHLPA is some bulls***. In the video he even lifted his leg way back in the opposite direction to get a good whack at Smith. I've never seen a worse slew foot, and am I hearing right that Smith is the one who got a hooking penalty on the play? Wow NHL, Wow....
As much as I don't like him when he floats around and takes nights off, he may have a very real, and serious, concussion issue. At this point, his future quality of life could be a greater concern than his hockey career.
Glad this ones a late start. Going to a section final game for high school. Probably miss couple minutes of this only.
The west coast trips always mean late nights and rough mornings for me. I fell asleep halfway through the 2nd of the LA. When I saw the score the next morning I went from mad I missed it to instantly happy I got more sleep.
From now on I'm wearing my yoga pants when I go to the hockey games. I want the players to see and feel the love I have for them. I want Benn to know I am a fan of his and don't hold any ill will towards him for punching Z in the back of the head. I would just die if someone beat his face in. Such a pretty face.
IDK, personally I'd like to see his "pretty" face get beat in.
Ok we get it. You don't like fighting. Ad nauseum.
I think he's made it clear that it's the arguments people use to justify fighting that bothers him. It bothers me too, and I love fighting. I don't like it because I think it protects stars (those days are longggggg gone). I like it because it's fun to watch. The same reason why I like big hits. I wanna see my boys pound on inferior teams players.
But go on, keep lying to yourselves that their is some deep unmeasurable impact that fighting has on the game that isn't just more injuries.
